Walt Disney World – level 3
Disney´s theme parks in Orlando, Florida, have been shut down since mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The company plans to reopen Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom on July 11, and Epcot and Hollywood Studios will open their gates to the public on July 15.
To prevent the spread of the coronavirus, all guests and employees will be required to wear face masks and undergo temperature screenings. Also, more hand-sanitizing stations will be installed throughout the parks. Anything that draws a crowd, like parades, shows, and character meet-and-greets, will be temporarily stopped. Park capacities will also be limited upon reopening.
The company has already begun its phased reopening of its Disney shopping and entertainment complex in Orlando. Other theme parks in the state, including Universal Orlando, Legoland Florida and SeaWorld Orlando plan to reopen in early June.
Difficult words: hand-sanitizing station (a place where people can clean their hands), character meet-and-greet (when people can meet a movie character that they like), capacity (how many people can go into a place), phased (divided into more steps).
